      Paycheck and benefits were ok.


      Everything else. The head people in IS are completely out of touch with their employees. They have made decisions and implemented policies that drove good people away en masse. This was brought up in meetings and the concerns were flippantly dismissed. Until they leave, I would not recommend this place to anyone in the IT field. Technology lags behind the private sector and it takes forever to get anything done. Also, I was sick and tired of hearing about equality and equity on an almost daily basis. I get it, those are important topics but hearing about it all the time detracts from the day to day work that needs to get done.

      I have a curious question to ask. I'm working on a way to help people do better at their job interviews.  What would you say is the hardest part about taking a job interview? And what can make the experience easier?


      Administrative Coordinator

      Hi! I just had an interview yesterday which was the second one (first was with in house recruiter). This interview was with the person who would be my boss. There are still two panel interviews to go with the rest of the team (if they choose me to go forward). Do I send a thank you email for this round? Especially bc it was with the director? Thanks for the help!


      Project Coordinator

      So I have been made redundant recently ( Im still working till mid December) and Im currently applying to lots of jobs. And I was thinking if I should get in contact with the hiring manager/HR about my application, trying to explain my situation and I would like to get an answer ASAP if they want me in for an interview or not(but at the same time I don’t want to sound too desperate or too pushy) but it’s a bit stressful and difficult dealing with this ( so I’m a bit desperate TBH)
